Physical activity – Parachute game fun with bedsheets and blankets!

Blow up a balloon and draw an alien face on it. Hold onto a blanket or bedsheet with your family and put the alien on top of it. Move the material up and down, trying to keep the alien on top of the material! Can you keep the alien bouncing up and down on the material? Try adding more than one alien to the material ‘spaceship’.


You could extend the game further by calling out each of your family member’s names one at a time and getting them to run underneath the material ‘spaceship’ and finding a new place to stand. You might even shout two people at a time to run underneath and then swap places!
